Hey dude. Did you catch that Nokia Lumia 920 image stabilisation video yesterday? If not, you can check it out right now over on the Tubes of You.
The chick is kinda cute, I guess, but within seconds I was hoping she fell off her bike. Oh, the larks! Uhm, what was I talking about again?
The aforementioned video was intended to show the Nokia Lumia 920’s Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) tech in all its glory. On the left, an annoying couple with OIS; on the right, the same annoying couple without.
The eagle-eyed chaps at PocketNow paused the video at the 29-second mark and noticed, thanks to a pesky reflection, that the video is apparently being filmed by a mysterious non-Lumia 920 device. Also: by a chap in a van, not on a bike. Just saying.
Indeed, the Finns later apologised over on Nokia Conversations, with a short post titled “An apology is due”.
The beautiful Heidi (in her last post before embarking on an Asian adventure) writes: “In an effort to demonstrate the benefits of optical image stabilization (which eliminates blurry images and improves pictures shot in low light conditions), we produced a video that simulates what we will be able to deliver with OIS.
“Of course, hindsight is 20/20, but we should have posted a disclaimer stating this was a representation of OIS only. This was not shot with a Lumia 920. At least, not yet. We apologize for the confusion we created.”
Fact fans might also be interested to know that Heidi has a penchant for Pad Thai. And with that, I’m off.
